Last year, Sasha Dichter, Chief Innovation Officer for Acumen Fund, converted his month-long "Generosity Experiment" into a global Generosity Day. The idea was simple: to reboot Valentine's Day as a day of "sharing love with everyone."
Sasha writes, "Give to people on the street. Tip outrageously. Help a stranger. Write a note telling someone how much you appreciate them. Smile. Donate (more) to a cause that means a lot to you. Take clothes to GoodWill. Share your toys (grownups and kids). Be patient with yourself and with others. Replace the toilet paper in the bathroom. All generous acts count!"
Last year I celebrated with a book/DVD giveaway and I'm doing it again this year!
Do something generous tomorrow - anything - and leave a comment telling us about it! I'll draw three names to win copies of The Gifts of Imperfection, I Thought It Was Just Me, and The Hustle for Worthiness DVD!
Happy Generosity Day!
Congrats to Joan, Drew B., and Donna F.!
